    Former Employee - Regional Sales Director in Boston, MA

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I learned so much in the 18 years I spent with this company. There were so many great mentors that I was lucky enough to work with. Great products too.

    Cons

    The usual big company issues:politics, sometimes impersonal but the pros of a big company far outweigh the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good people close and continue to develop them because that will always trickle down!

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Sanofi were so nice and helpful. I forgot what it was like to work for a company like that. It is what companies used to be like. Would have loved to have been hired by them.

    Cons

    They don't like to hire their contractors. They would rather keep a contractor on the books for years rather than hire them. If you need them for years it is obvious their is a business need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in touch with your employees. Leadership tends to have a lacking in this field.

    I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture is appealing, especially to current or recently graduated students who are looking to integrate into the corporate world.

    Cons

    Acquisitions have lead to an increasingly fragmented corporate structure creating internal inefficiencies. Note that this issue is not exclusively unique to Sanofi.
